I attribute some of my recent successful weight loss to my love of raw vegetables. I chopped up this huge bowl of celery, carrots, radishes and cauliflower today to take in my lunch all week. I eat a huge bag of these, augmented with cherry tomatoes, cucumber and zucchini that I add in each morning, every day for breakfast.
The folks who sit around me at work think I'm crazy. It doesn't help that eating crunchy raw vegetables give me the hiccups. And I am NOT a delicate, lady-like hiccuper. It's quite embarrassing when someone 2 rows of cubicles over can be overheard saying "oh don't worry about that noise, Andy must be eating her carrots."
